Shootout: The Best 110cc Bike; Hero Passion X Pro Vs Honda Dream Yuga Vs Honda CB Twister

Indian riders always love good mileage giving bikes. Hero, Bajaj and Honda are the major big bosses in providing economical motorcycles in the country. 100cc, 110cc and 125cc engines really have good time in the Indian two wheeler market. It would be hard for any two wheeler manufacturers to survive without any of these 3 engine displaced commuter bikes in their line up.

Honda has been a good option for 110cc bike searchers as its ramp is occupied by two 110cc motorcycles, CB Twister and Dream Yuga. As an excellent reply to Honda's one man show with these bikes, Hero Motocorp unveiled the Passion X Pro. More than a reply, it was a miraculous Diwali gift from world's number one two wheeler company.

Hero Passion X Pro Vs Honda Dream Yuga Vs Honda CB Twister

With better looks, better graphics and better design, Hero Passion X Pro tops the standings. Even though the Passion X Pro's design and graphics was inspired from Passion's signature style, the X Pro holds its own unique style and dignity. The newly designed headlamp, visor, silencer and additionally added fuel tank kit pay dynamic attention to it. The Passion X Pro is available in 8 stunning colors.

Similarly, the Dream Yuga resemblances Honda CB Shine, whereas the CB Twister slightly reflects the CB Unicorn Dazzler.

The X Pro is mated with more features. Digital-analog combo meter console, front disc brake, tubeless tyres and trapezoidal multi-focal headlamp obviously bring more room to commuter riders.
Meanwhile, the CB Twister comes with a front disc brake and a maintenance free battery. It severely lacks a digital meter. It's so terrible that Honda is still having outdated meter consoles. Though the half chain case looks trendy, it causes deposit of a lot of money in the name of maintenance.

At the same time, the Dream Yuga runs on tuff up tubeless tyres. Its 5 step adjustable rear suspension, smooth front suspension and long seat ensures comfortable city drivings. However, there are no digital meter console and no disc break. These two drawbacks don't list the Dream Yuga in the line up of next generation commuter bikes.

So considering features, the Passion X Pro is paid more attention.

Engine, Power and Performance
The Passion X Pro is equipped with a 109.1 cc, Air cooled, 4 - stroke single cylinder OHC engine. It is powered by a maximum output of 8.7 Ps @ 7500 rpm and a maximum torque of 9.36 Nm @ 5500 rpm. Its engine is further mated with all down 4 Speed constant mesh. The expected top speed of the X Pro is 104 kmph.

The Dream Yuga comes with a 109 cc, Single cylinder, four-stroke, SI engine. It ensures a maximum power of 8.5 bhp @ 7500 rpm and a peak torque of 8.91 Nm @5500 rpm. Alike Hero gear transmission, the Dream Yuga features an all down 4-speed constant mesh gearbox. The top speed of 95 kmph.

The same 109 cc, Single cylinder, four-stroke, SI engine which has been installed in the Dream Yuga is used in the CB Twister as well. But it's slightly more powered by a maximum power of 9 bhp @ 8000 rpm and useful torque of 9 Nm @ 6000 rpm. Its top speed is102 kmph.

Comparing engine, power and performance, the Passion X Pro excels the race.

It's not the mileage in papers we get when we practically do things. As we all know today's traffic in cities and even in rural areas, it's almost impossible to ride a bike as per standard conditions. Hence the economy we get change according to the way we go through.

Hero offers 70 kmpl mileage for the Passion X Pro. But it's possible to handle an overall mileage upto 65 kmpl.

72 kmpl is what Honda assures for the Dream Yuga. Still, it also provides us around 65 kmpl.

The ARAI mileage of CB Twister is 70 kmpl. This machine also doesn't change things. 65 kmpl is the average mileage of CB Twister.

Analysing these numbers, the Dream Yuga seems standing at the top with a mere difference.

Quality, Maintenance and Service
Both Hero and Honda are known for their quality and reliability. These brands are always trusted by millions of customers. So even if a new product is launched into the market, customers make no room to get confused and they directly walk into stores to have test drives. Nevertheless, Honda slightly stands at a better position in the name of reliable parts. Well, it doesn't mean Hero has low quality body parts for Hero's machines are always built in good quality materials.

These 3 bikes will only have the least maintenance. Among this, the Dream Yuga is expected to enrol the cheapest maintenance since it doesn't have front disc brake, and well packed for commuter riders. As the CB Twister comes with a half chain cover, it will be a matter of continuous service in regular interval of time.

Services are quiet easier for both Hero and Honda brands as they have a lot service centres across the country. However, Hero has more service centres. Moreover, spare parts of Hero are easily available at cheap rates, whereas Honda's spare parts are pretty costlier.

All three bikes are priced in similar numbers. However, the CB Twister is the cheapest among these three 110cc motorcycles. The Dream Yuga is priced a 1000 rupee more than the Twister, whereas Rs. 2000 more is needed to buy the Passion X Pro.

Concluding, it's really hard to find out the best bike from these 3 bikes analysed. Notwithstanding, comparing price, features, brand value, resale value, maintenance cost, mileage, performance, popularity and so on qualities, the winner is none other than Hero Passion X Pro.

Reasons why Passion X Pro is selected
Mileage, pricing, brand value resale value and maintenance cost are almost same for these 3 models. But Hero unveiled its Passion X Pro fully loaded. That is, the bike is equipped with digital meter what both its competitors lack. Additionally, it has a full chain cover which is not seen in the CB Twister, which is much helpful to reduce the maintenance cost. Finally, the absence of much essential disc brake on its opponent, Dream Yuga completely rolls out things towards the Passion X Pro.

Moreover, some of its special features such as tubeless tyres, trapezoidal multi-focal headlamp (MFR), and unique and stunning looks list the Passion X Pro in to the next generation commuter motorcycle's tabulation.
